    POY poll update

    Did not see this posted, but seems like this is TR's award to lose. Anthony Davis is making a strong case though and Dougie has fallen along with his team in the rankings.

    Oh and if you read further down about the 3 players not in the poll who deserve attention...

    I'm sick of the Thomas Robinson love fest, talk about OVER FREAKING RATED. He plays on a good team with a good point guard that gets him the ball in a great position to score and opposite of a 7 foot shot blocker.

    He's a very good college player but not nearly as good as ESPN wants you to think.

    With that being said, there isn't really anyone else this season that you could argue is more deserving, at least based on statistics.

    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    "-- Three players not in the poll who should get more attention: Iona guard Scott Machado, who continues to be one of the nation’s top passers, averaging 10 assists a game. Iowa State forward Royce White, while not putting up monster numbers, has been the key cog to the Cyclones' attempt to make a run at the NCAA tournament and is a matchup nightmare for any team facing him. Syracuse guard Dion Waiters, who while being the Orange’s sixth man, has been a major reason for their success averaging 12.2 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists in just 23.7 minutes -- minutes much lower than any other contender. Three of the four players mentioned here two weeks ago ended up in this poll. The other was Seton Hall’s Herb Pope."

    I'm sure Royce would be more than happy to settle for NCAA Tourney MOP.
